Studio #78, Open Oct 7, 8, 14, 15

4944 Pearl St, Boulder, CO 80301

Studio G: Studio is on Pearl Street (not Pearl Parkway), just East of 49th Street. Studio entrance is on far east side of building through storefront doors.


As an abstract encaustic painter working with molten beeswax and pigment, I build up layers and textures then scrape the cooled paint back to reveal what’s buried underneath. I incise lines of contrasting color into luminous backgrounds to explore the relationship between the definite and the amorphous, that place where a hard edge or line meets the soft and yielding.   

In both art and life I think this border--between land and sky, sleeping and waking, curiosity and certainty--is where we are most alive and can see most clearly.
